that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> just 16 days since election officials called the state of florida for president obama and republicans there are starting to reveal the dirty tricks they placed. charlie crist told the palm beach post that there was a coordinated effort by governor rick scott and others to suppress the democratic vote. former florida republican party chairman jim gear said: >> at said: >> even as it becomes clear the voter discrimination is still a very real problem in parts of this country. the supreme court will hear arguments about getting rid of section five of the voting lights act of 1965. the act signed by president johnson said areas with a history of discrimination must get approval for any new voting laws. nine southern states plus counties in new york, and michigan fall under its jurisdiction. in the case, shelby county v. holder, one alabama county is challenging the law saying it unfairly targets their state. six other signed on. joining me now to discuss is julian bond, the former chairman of the naacp and instrumen

'm not obligated on the pledge. i was just elected. the only thing i'm honoring is the oath that i take that i've sworn in in january. >> that is the sound of cracks forming in grover norquist's facade. he's the guy who gets republicans to sign a pledge that they will never ever under any circumstances raise taxes. but with the fiscal cliff looming, there's a growing consensus that taxes may have to go up. norquist said those who reneged would pay a price. >> would you target some of them? >> we would certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn't. >> fortunately for grover, but unfortunately for those who want everyone to contribute their fair share there are plenty of republicans caught in the pass, plenty who can't accept that president obama won reelection >> there are some republicans who recognize they did lose and that new revenue new tax revenue will have to be part of any deficit deal. i noticed mitch mcconnell's talked about tax rates. he's going to insist that tax rates not go any higher. you've got the mathematicians trying to raise the numbers. you can exact the

netanyahu is up for election in january. this is a little bit wag the dog. he's provoked this crisis to some extent in order to try to get a favorable settlement so that he can go to the electorate and say see i'm the one who stopped the rockets. >> jennifer: israel would say that the continual bombing was the provocative move and that they're acting defensively for their people. what happens if, in fact, israel decides to move the 16,000 troops to a ground war? do you think that actually would happen or is it really truly a show? >> oh, i think it is entirely possible that netanyahu will decide he wants to invade. i don't believe that the israelis can accomplish their war aims by invading. that is to say gaza is not penetrable by israel and they cannot, in fact, stop all of those little homemade rockets from coming out in this way because even hamas, you know, has been cooperating with israel in the past few months and trying to stop the rockets. there was a truce. and israel in september i remember seeing headline wher

elections by rallying up this crazy 20% right wing base. >> jennifer: let's talk about the politics of that. oil companies spend a huge amount of money. oil and gas industry spent $149 million last year which is the third most of any industry according to the center for responsive politics. politically though -- >> save their butt. >> jennifer: is there a way, politically, that we can drive this electric vehicle message and get some support for the electric vehicle industry? >> we do a few things. one is we've gotta get outside of washington and drive this thing from the state and local. >> eliot:. >> jennifer: preach it. >> did you it as governor of michigan. republicans and democrats -- they're proving that this is an economic -- >> jennifer: they need to get in the ear of their members of congress. >> and in the ear of "the washington post" and "the new york times" and cnn. you mention i didn't mention fox news. the maybe stream media still -- the mainstream media still doesn't get the story right. we won't

election, he very rightfully took credit for the bailout and i think that like the bank bailout, it's -- it was a shifting a lot of taxpayer money to these huge multinational corporations, and maybe not enough of the upside trickled down to regular people. >> jennifer: well, your book is a -- it's a candid love story, really. you don't hold back the raw truths, but you recognize that detroit is like a phoenix project. what have you seen that should give people hope? >> well, one thing is the economy is finally starting to diversify. i think that has been a positive thing about the auto industry being on the ropes. the city and the state as a whole doesn't seem to be putting all of its shifts solely on the auto industry as it happens did in the past and i write quite a bit about the bottom-up energy that is happening in the city. and i write about the do it yourself city like detroit. the government really isn't functioning properly, but it does give people the sort of space to do things like plant urban gardens or just start their sort of own entrepreneurial
